Meet Victoria
Victoria is a busy lady. She’s a partner in a law firm, has three kids and a lot of hobbies. She also has a beautiful investment property in East Melbourne, which she only recently put on the short-term rental market.

Victoria’s rental issues...
Her tenants of four years ended their lease last September and Victoria, who had heard that she could significantly increase her income by letting her home out to holiday makers and business travelers, made the leap to the short-term market. Unfortunately, she struggled to keep up with the more frequent enquiries that come with this approach and bookings kept slipping through her fingers.

This is where we came in
Seeing an ad for Hometime’s hands-off hosting, Victoria decided to give us a try. The effect was almost immediate – her inner city home was an attractive prospect for guests so, coupled with a 100% within the hour response rate, her calendar filled up very quickly. With a large number of bookings, great reviews and lightning fast replies to guest enquiries, Victoria has reached and maintained Superhost status. This means her property is always near the top of search results (when it’s available), further increasing her chances of converting lookers to bookers.

I really appreciate the quality and professionalism that Hometime delivers. The switch to renting my property on Airbnb was initially time consuming, but with Hometime I can now get increased rewards with less effort.

In the end...
Despite this huge success, Victoria tells us the best outcome is that she got her time back. By taking the work and worry out of managing her short-term rental, Hometime has allowed her to spend more time with her kids and more time perfecting her golf swing. She also has more money to play with but, for her, this is a secondary win.
